Hunny & I prepared this last evening & was as I remembered from the 1970's though sans nutmeats. Thank You to a fabulous Team & Finders of a beloved Recipe believed lost forever.
I plan to serve these cookies at my dau's HS graduation party. Turned out great. Makes a lot with just a little effort. Put them in the freezer. Delish!
THE BOMB!!!!EVERYONE CAME IN FROM CHRISTMAS SHOPPING AND GOBBLED THEM.
This is so buttery and delicious I could eat it all day.
The shortbread base was crumbly and overdone at 22 minutes. Next time I'll try 20 minutes.
Super simple and delicious, a definite keeper! I used more chocolate chips than the recipe called for to make spreading easier.
It was excellent and I put it in the freezer before I served them.
As a toffee lover, I'd had this recipe on my fridge (it was inside a margarine box) for months waiting for an opportunity. I made it for my son's graduation party in addition a bakery cake and homemade brownies. The cookies flew off the plate,and were gone first. Abolutely delicious and incredibly easy. I'm waiting for a new opportunity to make them again. I'd make them just to make them, but then likely I'd be eating to many. Addictive.

Caramel and cake. The subtle sweetness of the pound cake combined with the browned butter and toasty sugar flavor in the caramel sauce icing creates a dessert well worth the time to make it.
